The theme for June is #goreads

This month we will be reading all sorts of things describing journeys, adventures and experiences of new places.  Our desire for new experiences will be stimulated as we encounter exotic locales that we have never before imagined or explored, but we might also discover travel writing, fiction and non fiction that reminds us of all those special places in our lives, encouraging feelings of nostalgia and gentle homesickness that feed into our longing to go out into the world and experience it to the fullest.

You can join us and tweet about what you are reading in June using the twitter hashtag #goreads.  You can also use this tag on other social media sites such as flickr or when you post about your reading on your blog.

You might also want to add tags for each month’s reading to Trove, Library Thing, and your library catalogue (if that is possible) – so that other people can see what you are reading.

This is a reading month for place lovers, intrepid adventurers, dreamers and armchair travelers.  So as winter sets in we hope you will join us in exploring the world – fueling your own wanderlust and imagination as you read and share your travel titles during #goreads.

    Again Parramatta City Library has made some bookmarks for suggested reads for June on its library blog Parra Reads. We’d like to share with everyone. Here is the link http://www.parracity.nsw.gov.au/blogs/blog7.php. Happy reading!
